    OK, I guess it's about time for a tenth attempt at getting some SC THRers together. My semester is done as of 10am tomorrow morning, so I'll be free most afternoons during the week and almost all weekends.

    MCRC (Columbia area) is an excellent facility and there are enough members here to bring in most people that are likely to show up that are not members. Indian Creek is another possibility (near Whitmire). IC is a public range. I don't have a problem driving to other places, but those two ranges are centrally located in the state.

    How 'bout Saturday, May 15th?

    I just threw out a date - as I said, I'm open for just about any time. Sunday would be fine with me. I could even go this weekend. Only thing is, the longer we wait the hotter it gets :(

    Forecast for this weekend is in the 90s already...you mean it gets hotter here? :uhoh:

    J/K...I've been at Ft Benning, GA for an entire summer, and spent one August at Ft Irwin in the Mojave (can you say 125 in the shade?). I can deal with heat. Does cut down on the enjoyment factor a good bit though.

    How about early morning before it gets hot...that would probably work for me and my wife. Although one of us would have to stay with Langenator Jr (3 months) while the other shoots.

    How early? College students are not known for their fondness of the morning.

    Given the logistics of prepping myself, my wife, and Jr for movement, I'd say anything before 9:30 would be tough to achieve.

    I wouldn't know much about college students and late mornings. I was in ROTC and got up early most days. Occassionaly, I would be done with class for the day before my roommate's first class.

    10am sounds good to me.

    Are Langenator and I the only motivated High Roaders, or have the rest of you heard some vile rumors or something?

    MCRC would be the best, but we'll need some more members to get everyone in. Members can only take 4 guests on the weekends. I'll claim Langenator and his wife (I don't think Jr. counts), and I'll have at least one friend coming with me.

    If we can't get enough members together, we'll have to go to Indian Creek. The logistics of MCRC are more complicated, but it's an awesome range (collection of ranges, really).

    Well, I'd certainly be willing to come, and I expect my brother would come with me, but his membership to MCRC expired so I don't know about getting in there.

    Anybody else out there wanna vouch for us?

    Yowza - don't worry about it yet. Let's wait until Saturday so we'll have a better idea of how many people are going. Could be that a few more MCRC members wanna join in, in which case we can get in there. If not, I'll post directions to Indian Creek.

    I'm going to have to pass this time around. I'm scheduled for a root canal on Monday, and right now I'm in too much pain to shoot.:mad:

    Alright, that sounds good. I'll keep a close eye on this thread.

    I've never been to Indian Creek. What's the range there like?

    LT-

    I'm an MCRC member, and Mrs L is on my membership. So I'm good for some guests as well.

    Hey, I just saw this thanks to LiquidTension's signature line. I can't make it this time, but let me know next time and I'll definitely try to make it.

    LT,
    Although I don't reside in SC, I'm just across the Savannah River in Augusta GA. Would love to attend if you would e-mail particulars on when and where. Have some new toys and I am itching to play with them. Let me know.

    Be well,

    Doug

    We still need some more MCRC members if we're gonna go there (I've got several people that may come). At this point it's still leaning toward Indian Creek.

    I told my wife last night, and her first response was, "Cool!" (God I love that girl!), so I'll be there if it's at MCRC. Not sure on Indian Creek...where exactly is the place?

    Question: I'm an MCRC member, and membership for the Mrs comes with that...so would I be good for 8 guests, or only 4?

    I think you're only good for 4, but you'd have to email Julie Hollings to be sure.

    I'm not sure about how many guests can be brought in, but I was just looking at the MCRC calendar and they are having pistol and small bore rifle silhouette shoots beginning at 9:00 AM. I don't know if that would preclude us from using the other ranges, though.
